Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Batgirl story on July 14

Batgirl begins on July 14 for Season Pass owners when WB Montreal introduces its add-on to Batman: Arkham Knight.

There are still a large number of Batman: Arkham Knight players that are running through that game's main story, but the story is about to expand just a little more. Warner Bros. is preparing to issue the game's first Season Pass content and is kicking off its six months' worth of content with the Batgirl prequel first revealed in May.

Titled "A Matter of Family," the Batgirl DLC will take place before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, introducing new locations, missions, and side quests. Batgirl will have her own hacking tool to help her get through the world, while she'll also occasionally team up with Robin for some dual-team takedowns. WB Montreal (developer of Batman: Arkham Origins and perhaps the next in line to take the mantle of the Bat) is the team behind this Batgirl content, but the remainder of the Season Pass content will be released under the Rocksteady banner.

Batgirl begins for Season Pass owners on July 14. For those that do not own the Arkham Knight Season Pass, A Matter of Family will be released separately for about $9 on July 21. This Season Pass content will be released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. No word on when the PC version of the game will get this content, but that particular iteration of the game seems to have its own problems at the moment.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      That last paragraph brought me to a shitty realization. Those of us who have the season pass on PC, and have a functioning, if not perfect PC copy, are going to get screwed over, aren't we?

        I think they will fix it and we will get our DLC. :|

        I'm wondering what, if anything, Warner Brothers is going to do to 'make it up' to the people who already own 'Knight on PC. They've received terrible press from the PC release debacle and I'd be surprised if they just sat on their hands, released a patch and called it a day.

          My gut tells me that's exactly what they'll do; we'll be lucky to get a patch while the game is still current. Sony, Microsoft, CD Projekt, Blizzard; those companies would be comping some free DLC or something for sure.

          A lot depends on how many PC sales there were though. If it's a drop in the bucket vs. the console sales, the bad press on PC sales may not bother management enough to care.
